Nutritious food also keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. Here are some to add to your diet – all proven to give you healthy, glowing skin.
1. Water: The obvious one, but a very important one. It’s crucial for good skin and overall health, so drink up and say thank you.
2. Tropical Fruit: Fruits like pineapple, papaya, kiwi and guava – which contain vitamin C – are great for your skin, defending it against damaging free radicals.
3. Fish: Salmon, mackerel, shrines and more should all be include into your diet – the omega-3 fats help fortify skin cell membranes, protect against sun damage and could reduce the risk of certain forms of skin cancer.
4. Carrots: They’re good for the eyes, and for the skin, it seems. They are high in beta carotene, which helps repair skin tissue.
5. Pumpkin Seeds: This superfood is high in zinc which helps protect your cell membranes, maintains collagen, and promotes skin renewal.
6. Whole Grain Pastas And Breads: Selenium, which is found in whole wheat pasta and bread, helps protect your skin against environmental damage and promotes elasticity and general skin health, say experts.
7. Broccoli: While it might not be the most delicious on the list, it’s great for overall skin care. High in antioxidants, eating broccoli will aid in collagen production and keep skin supple and healthy.
